Thanks very much for all answers that I have received, I will try to look into 
it and let you know what the outcome is.

wget mainline can be built using mingw gcc in msys or command prompt, or cl 
msvc. the code as it stands i don't believe will compile clean on any. i've 
done all three and in every case i had to patch. i linked in mingw openssl, 
never tried msvc openssl wget combo.

your request has come up on the list before. keisal wrote a patch for 
mingw32-make compile from command prompt that is somewhere on the list and i 
wrote a quick patch for msys compile later that month that really didn't fix 
anything but hey it was successful for a compile

to recap go here

earlier this month i had planned to redistribute another wget/openssl combo but 
instead i am waiting. i modified a version of keisal's patch so you can use
 that for now. he said his patch is ok for gpl but really at some point less 
patchy patches like ours are needed. my msvc patch is just terrible but it 
works. i can't find it right now but i can always rewrite it. msvc lacks c99 so 
you can't do inline variable declarations in c and some other things. part of 
the msvc patch was moving some declarations around.

download the patch wget-mainline-030410.patch.zip from here:


download mainline-013c8e2f5997 from here:


hg.addictivecode.org seems to be up and down today so i put 
mainline-013c8e2f5997 on my drop as wget-mainline-030410.zip

unzip wget-mainline-030410.patch.zip
follow the directions in wget-mainline-030410.patch.zip:

do this from a command prompt not msys:

unzip wget-mainline-030410.zip
copy errno.h mainline-013c8e2f5997\lib
copy build_info.c mainline-013c8e2f5997\src
windres mainline-013c8e2f5997.rc -O coff -o 
cd mainline-013c8e2f5997
patch -p1 < ..\mainline-013c8e2f5997-v2.patch
configure.bat --mingw && mingw32-make
cd src

for just ipv6 do:
mingw32-make clean && mingw32-make

for both ipv6 and SSL do:
mingw32-make clean && mingw32-make SSL=1

Your main problem is that WINDOWS macro isn't defined. Add -DWINDOWS=1
to the CFLAGS.

There's http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm but it's at 1.11.4
I know they tried to update it, but I don't know about its status.

I'm pretty sure I was able to
 build wget with openssl from mercurial.
I don't think I ever followed the exact gnulib ./configure but once wget
the change to get openssl was minimal.
Of course, certificates never validate but that's an openssl issue. You
would need to copy locally the root certificates for them to work and make
openssl point there.
